About Me

I am a second-year (2019-Now) Ph.D. student in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, advised by Prof. Meng Jiang. Before that, I received my bachelor degree of Computer Science and Technology at Sichuan University.

My research interest lies in natural language processing (NLP). Specifically, I am working on natural lanuage generation (NLG) and complex question answering (QA) system.
